Well, I finished it is about all I can say. If I had to read one more time about the extra 15 pounds the heroine was carrying I was going to, I don't know, eat a snack that was bad for me. Perhaps because this was number 2 in the series I felt like I knew what would happen next and, yep, it would happen. Some times a book that I have high expectations for turns out to be less than expected. That was the case with this one.
